Hello! I’m Sáde Cromratie Clemons. My work involves Eco-hydrology and fluvial geomorphology. I study tree response to flooding and how that affects carbon transport and storage. #Colorado #hydrology #gueSTAAR Image
When floods happen, big pieces of trees can be moved into or near a stream, causing a jam of wood pieces. Wood jams are pretty neat because they can store carbon. Since floods create wood jams, flooding affects how carbon is transported through forests and rivers. Image
Wow! That's a crazy logjam! But where did the wood come from? That’s what I try to figure out by looking at tree rings and isotope values. Last fall and spring, I took samples from a logjam near a stream and samples from hillslope trees in the same area for reference. Prof. Holly Barnard and Sád...

Hi, I’m Shaily Rahman. I’m a geochemist and oceanographer. I work in coastal systems. On this project, my focus is studying the reactive silicon cycle.

#Silicon is the second most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. It exerts strong controls over the global carbon cycle and many trace element cycles. But we have very few tracers that show how reactive silicon moves around the surface of our planet.
Diatoms, a type of phytoplankton, need dissolved silica to reproduce and to build their shells out of amorphous glass. They're responsible for 15 to 18 % of global oxygen production.

Hi, I’m Sara Sayedi @Sara_Sayedi, a PhD student @Byu at @thermokarst lab. I use expert knowledge/ judgment to see how different Earth systems will interact with #climatechange and provide policy-relevant information. #gueSTAAR
Before coming to the States for graduate school, I lived in Iran where I studied environmental science and management. During my MSc studies, the question that became most interesting for me was, how can we include the latest Earth science in decision making processes?
For my PhD, I work with different scientific communities (e.g. @PermafrostCN and @PaleofireWG) to answer questions that are interesting to the public and policy makers about different Earth systems.

Hi, we’re Kerry Koepping and Andrea Sparrow, some of the executive team members of the Arctic Arts Project. We’re part of a network of photographers, working in the #Arctic, who try to bring home an understanding of #climatechange through our work. #SciArt #gueSTAAR
We’re on a mission to provide visual storytelling that helps people understand the evolution of our warming world. We want to generate impactful imagery that is given context by current science. #seethingsdifferently #BenElkins
That’s why Kerry is an affiliate of @INSTAAR--we work closely with scientists because we need to get it right. We want to embed climate science into compelling stories. @KKoepping #BenElkins
